$175,000 Recovery For Premises Liability

Our client was shopping in the automotive aisle of a large discount chain store when unexpectedly two tool boxes fell from the overhead shelving. She was struck in the head and neck area. An incident report was filed with the store manager, and our client was treated in the emergency room. Our office filed suit against the discount chain and after several years of litigation and weeks before trial, settled our client’s claims for $175,000. The defendant argued that our client was climbing on the shelves prior to the toolboxes falling and that the negligence on her part attributed to the incident. Injuries: Back and neck injury requiring surgery, extensive physical therapy and pain management. Damages: Past and future medical expenses, past and future lost wages, pain and suffering.
